WTF of the day: Stupid when hungry.

You know how some medicine indicates to not operate machinery when taken, well happy city distractions+hungry=stupidity.
Last week after finishing lunch I couldn't find my keys. When I walked outside under the suspicion of the scary, I saw my keys clipped to my basket. Dont-ask-me-why. Ummm yea. Not sure what travesty that would have been. Ok dont give me crap for it. Ok maybe. Grrrrrr.
Same reason why I have to have coffee before speaking to anyone in the morning....

Have you had any -DU'H- moments while with your bike?! Do tell.
Stupid when hungry.

  1. Yipes, that is dangerous. My duh moment was when I left my little point and shoot camera hanging from my bell. Luckily, I realized after a couple of minutes because that would not have lasted long.

  2. Oh no!

    One time I locked my bike up, or so I thought, to a pole outside the boutique I used to work at. My friend came in to visit me and informed me that although I had locked my bike, it was not locked to anything. In fact, when I went outside it was on it's side with a chain going through the frame & wheel. That was a major duh!! moment for me. Luckily no one stole it!!

  3. I was once paged to the service counter at Rainbow Grocery because I had not only locked my bike up to the bike rack, but also to the other bike on the rack, and the poor guy couldn't leave...d'oh!

  4. That's a pretty good one, Meli! I sometimes document spaced-out lock jobs when I come across them (http://tinyurl.com/yer968g). The other day though, I was super hungry too, but stopped by REI first to get some stuff. When I came out I found that I had "locked" my beloved beater (http://tinyurl.com/y9b2g37) to the bike rack by putting the u-lock around a post but sitting on top of my bike frame. Zoinks!

    Keep spinning,

  5. Just this morning, I left the house to walk the dog. I'd planned to take BART to work, since my beloved bike was at work from logistical-transpo drama from last Friday. Since I was not in my usual bike commute mode, I didn't grab my bike keys, the lanyard of which also contains my house key. So when I went to drop the dog off and pick up my stuff to head to BART, I realized that I had no keys at all. Drama ensued. MORAL: Never commute other than by bike! :-)

  6. Stan Laural (of "Laural & Hardy" fame) once said "I dreamt I was awake but when I woke up I was asleep".

  7. I'm a walking *doh* moment. I'm pretty sure I was the inspiration for Homer Simpson.

    Last night I totally spazzed. Got off the train w/ bike in San Jose, walked to the bus stop. Set my bike down and set my bag down. Talked with Kate for a minute a when I realized my backpack isn't on my back! I ran back to the train (still at the platform w/ doors closed), flagged down a conductor who let me on, bag not on the train! Asked conductors if anybody turned my bag in, went back to bus stop with a bad feeling in my gut, and then I notice my backpack right where I left it on the ground next to the bike.

  9. hey,
    followed some links and randomly came across the blog today, and felt like sharing my very recent moment.

    2 days ago my boyfriend was apparently trying to tighten or adjust my saddle with vice grips.
    when i got up in the morning i didn't notice they were still attached, and rode all the way to work with the pair clamped on, sticking out the side of the seat. durrrhhh.

    anyways, i dig the blog, it's so colourful!
